    well, i totally missed on my prediction of a good game last night between Gonzaga and St. Mary's.

    the Gaels didn't show up to play, and they got blitzed! they'll need to re-focus quickly in order to return to form. if things hold true, they should still get another crack at the Zags in the conference tourney after splitting the two head-to-head meetings during conference play.

    Xavier's JP Macura is having a great season and getting a bunch of attention. Watched him for the first time in Xavier's win against Creighton yesterday. After the game the network showed a highlight reel of him. Here's another one:

    The Washington Post yesterday had an article on Macura by a black writer named Roman Stubbs. The gist of the story is that Macura is the second most hated player in college basketball after Grayson Allen. It stated that he has blond hair and looks like Dennis the Menace in this black writers' opinion. More of the usual hate Whites narrative.

    I was hoping the Gaels would play better as well. St. Mary's doesn't seem to have any answer for the Zags' black Japanese forward, Rui Hachimura. In both games, he's killed the Gaels by getting the rim and converting his opportunities. He had another big game last night. St. Mary's is going to have to stop him if they're going to win the rubber match in the WCC.

    For those of you who want to see Luke Maye's diverse offensive skillset, here you go:



    Of course, Macura would be a hated player. DWFs hate good white players, and Macura is one of them.

    Ethan Happ had another monster game with 29 points and 7 boards. It's a shame the Badgers aren't any good this year.

    Moritz Wagner and Duncan Robinson both had good games today. Wagner had 20 points and 11 boards, while Robinson was second on the team with 16 points.

    Duke not so bad to watch right now. Marvin Bagley is out, and Alex O'Connell is starting in his place. O'Connell and Grayson Allen have been fun to watch against Georgia Tech.
